Linthwaite Brass Band or Linfit Band as it is affectionately known, if you are local, is located in the heart of the Colne Valley near to Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.Our band is steeped in history and currently, we are in a comfortable position in the 4th Section of the British Brass Band Association league tables, and we are a coiled spring ready to bounce into the league above. Along the way, if we can maintain our policy of promoting the talents of young (and older) players, then success will come to all as shown in our history of contest achievements and the numerous players who have moved on to top flight bands or become professional musicians. If we could just entice them back to support the band again....Linfit Band has always been a self-supporting village band without any funding from sponsorship or the constraints of "club" facilities and prides itself on being able to make its way each year, although there are times when it would be nice to have the extra pairs of hands that these aspects can bring! If you can lend a hand, have no fear, bite the bullet and get in contact!
